The Intangible Of Ministry

One of the reasons why it is important to plan your year and evaluate your progress, is because ministry is often very intangible. That means many times you can feel it or see it.

It is very often you don't realize you are going in the wrong direction until you see the harvest of the crop you have been working. Remember, faith is the substance of things hoped for. Our ministries are built on faith. A faith that is not really seen until it happens.

Once you have set your vision, mission, and is important to evaluate. You can choose many methods...I would suggest your ultimate evaluation would be one whether you are fulfilling your vision.

If your vision is to create fully devoted followers of Christ...what exactly does that mean and how will you know if you are getting there. Will it be based on how many baptisms you do each year? Or how many people are participating in small groups?

It is not always Sunday morning attendance that determines whether you are going in the right is whether you are fulfilling the vision God has given you.
